How Companies Can Celebrate Women’s History Month Every Day

On Valentine’s Day, we send flowers or chocolates to make our partners, families, and friends feel a little more loved. On Mother’s Day, we write heartwarming cards to tell our mothers, grandmothers, or any female influence in our lives how much they are appreciated. Holidays are intended to allow us to celebrate or commemorate an event or the people in our lives, but why should we leave it up to one day in the year to let the people around us know how much they are appreciated?

Carpenter’s Shelter: A Project that Hits Close to Home

It's the people that make the place. The community you feel proud to be a part of and the place you call home. Since 1982, Carpenter’s Shelter has evolved from a small group of concerned citizens into a leader in finding solutions that end and prevent homelessness in our very own community in Alexandria, VA.

DEI in Focus: Show Us, Don’t Tell Us

Forrest Mars Sr. came up with the idea for M&M’s after observing soldiers eating chocolate during the 1930s Spanish Civil War. As you know, heat liquefies chocolate like butter in a frying pan, making your fingers sticky. So, the concept of wrapping chocolate in a hard candy shell was born. With it, came an immortal tagline: Melts in your mouth, not in your hands. M&M’s are practical. They’re colorful. The characters are fun. Did we need them to be anything more?

How Brands Can Communicate Giving Back in an Authentic Way

Have you ever donated or volunteered but felt awkward about telling people or maybe even hesitated to post about it on your social networks? We’ve all been there –maybe it feels…too self-promotional?

Building a Buzz Around Workplace Giving

There should be a direct and overt connection between an organization’s “giving back” initiatives and its core values. If there is no such connection? Maybe the values aren’t really values—or maybe the giving back is a thinly-disguised PR play. If there is a connection? Giving back is a powerful way to build engagement with hard-to-recruit and hard-to-retain employees.
